Newell Recycling has opened a recycling facility in Statesboro, Ga. The new
facility, to be called Newell Recycling of Statesboro, LLC, is located in
eastern Georgia.

The site, formerly Whitaker Motors, will accept both ferrous and non-ferrous
scrap metals. The company expects the location to be a major supplier of
shredder feed and other metals to Newell Recycling of Savannah, LLC, its newly
opened processing plant.

Automobiles taken in at the Statesboro facility will be crushed and shipped to
the company’s auto shredder in Savannah.

"We welcome the opportunity to become a part of the community of Statesboro,
with our recent acquisition of Whitaker Motors," says Richard Riley, manager of
Strategic Development for Newell Recycling, LLC. "We believe this purchase gives
us the ability to develop new business in key regions that support our shredders
in Atlanta and Savannah, while providing jobs to members of the community."

The Statesboro location also is advantageous because it allows the company to
extend its coverage area in regards to Savannah. The location also is near some
light manufacturing facilities, as well as some smaller salvage yards, which the
company hopes to work with to help feed Newell Recycling’s larger yard in

The company was founded in 1935 by Alton Scott Newell. Including its Statesboro
location, Newell Recycling has 10 locations in Georgia.
